Golden Mouth: The Story of John Chrysostom - Ascetic, Preacher, Bishop - J.N.D. Kelly

310 pages - Softcover - ISBN-10: 080102210X

Kelly knows the texts, and is a master of the ecclesiastical background and of the scholarly literature. -- Journal of Ecclesiastical History

Looking at what Kelly has produced, it is clear that the educated reader and the scholar will find this story informative and interesting, and any serious student of Chrysostom will have to begin with this book. -- Theological Studies

No other author has delved so deeply into the life and work of this complex, influential, and tragic figure of the fourth century and produced such a far-ranging but precise, solidly researched, and eminently readable account. . . . Chrysostom emerges as a sympathetic and tragic figure of great integrity, whose human failings contributed and perhaps led to his downfall. . . . Kelly has used a careful analysis of many of John's writings and sermons to present new insights and to confirm details of Chrysostom's life previously considered doubtful; his comments and summaries stimulate one to turn to the originals. Those who are interested in Chrysostom or in this historical period must read this book. -- Catholic Historical Review

This is a book to relish rather than take apart, and I fully recommend it to historians and theologians alike. It is a fitting climax to a lifetime of distinguished scholarly output. -- Journal of Theological Studies
